In line drawing, accenting lines is the gradual increase or decrease in the weight or thickness of lines as produced by a pencil or similar medium by the amount of pressure exerted on it while drawing. Accenting should not be confused with shading ? the filling in of areas to represent shadow. Accenting refers only to lines used for the contours or outlines in the drawing of a subject.
